Despite all the ugly publiShitty stunts the Bollywood criminal Salman Khan engaged in (including sucking the Paki dicks by describing the 11/26 Mumbai terror attacks as overhyped), his new movie Dabangg has failed to set the box office on fire.
The U.S. box office, that is.
Dabangg – Crappy Movie
Take for instance Salman Khan’s new film Dabangg.
By any yardstick, the movie is a piece of trash.
Describing it as garbage, plain and simple, the wise souls at SearchIndia.com wrote:
The singular achievement of the sophomoric troika of actor Salman Khan, producer Arbaaz Khan and director Abhinav Kashyap is that with Dabangg they have reduced Bollywood to the level of those trashy Tamil films where a maniacal hero runs amok beating all and sundry to a pulp when he’s not making eyes at a buxom belle.
Ugly as Hell
Folks, Dabangg is not a movie so much as expulsion of one long, foul-smelling fart that completely vitiates the surrounding atmosphere and jarringly echoes for the full length of the film.
Devoid of anything remotely resembling a story, destitute of any logic and deprived of decent music, Dabangg is a sound slap in the face to Bollywood and Salman Khan fans….
According to media reports, the movie is off to a rocking start in India.
Not surprising since anything so rotten finds eager takers there. Isn’t that why we call the country Incredible India. 😉
But in the U.S., the film has not been a killer at the box office.
Say what you will but sometimes desis in the U.S. prove that they are far smarter than the schmucks back home in India. 😉
For the September 10-12, 2010 opening Eid weekend, Dabangg could manage only a total gross of $628,137 with an average of $10,131.
Here’s how Dabangg fared at the U.S. box office compared to a few prominent Bollywood films:
We can’t help but wonder why Dabangg’s U.S. distributor Eros released it on only 62 screens.
Was Eros scared of its fate considering the dismal performance of Salman Khan’s previous movies in the U.S.?
If we were Arbaaz Khan, we sure would ask the Eros management a lot of questions.
Decent in UK
On the other hand, Dabangg has notched up a fairly decent performance in the UK.
